The NJDA Wildlife Fencing Program makes cost-share funding available for the installation of wildlife fencing on unpreserved farms. Unpreserved farm owners, operators, or tenants in New Jersey may receive up to 50 percent matching funds ($50,000 maximum) if their application is approved. The application form is available through a clickable link below. More information about the program is available through the Notice of Availability clickable link below.

Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds for the fiscal year are expended. All applicants who are approved for a cost-share grant will need to sign a Grant Award Agreement. Applicants who operate but do not own the farmland described in their application must receive written authorization from the landowner to install wildlife fencing on the land. Applicants must review a copy of the Grant Award Agreement before applying – please see the clickable links below.  

This program is conducted in accordance with N.J.S.A. 4:20-6.1.
